JOHN DIVA and The Rockets of Love - The Big Easy (2023) - full

21st Century Hair Metal heroes JOHN DIVA and The Rockets of Love are dropping their third album “The Big Easy” on March 17th, 2023. Their second offering “American Amadeus” served as an ode to Glam Metal, but for record number three, the five musicians revisit what they do best: straightforward, refreshing rock with distinctive riffs, hard beats, multilayered lyrics, and a frontman in top form. Hard rock to pop metal to rock&pop all is covered in “The Big Easy”.
“Remember 80-something-we never seemed to miss a thing” – these first lines of John Diva’s latest song “Back In The Days” are a perfect summary of what this band stands for: Spandex pants, juvenile folly, a love for partying, and a Walkman with a fresh set of batteries.
John Diva & The Rockets Of Love are bringing back carefree 80s vibes, yet manage to make them sound brand new. And isn’t carefreeness exactly what we all need right now?

The name of the record says it all: “We wanted to record an album that sounds like Cherry Cola,” guitarist Snake Rocket explains the process of creating “The Big Easy”. “Also, we put great emphasis on the fact that the record is intended as an album and doesn’t sound as if we jammed together an intro and eleven random songs. The record works in that order precisely.”

It only took six months from initial song idea to finished album. Never has John Diva & The Rockets Of Love sounded more like a unit – never has the group oozed so much joy and California sunshine from every pore. John Diva & The Rockets Of Love are synonymous with wild parties, passionate live shows, but also liberal messages in their lyrics.
